‘A Worm in the Heart’ details the lives and stories from the LGBTQ+ community across Russia. Shot in six cities along the Trans-Siberian railway, and utilizing unreleased footage about queer life in the USSR; this documentary details the current state of the Russian queer community — giving both broad societal overviews and deeply personal accounts from activists and non-activists alike. The film follows Paul Rice and Liam Jackson Montgomery, a gay couple from Ireland, as they travel on the Trans-Siberian railway meeting with a diverse range of LGBT+ people; from Nobel Peace prize nominees and drag queens, to those who have suffered brutal homophobic and transphobic attacks.
